the money that has been allocated for san francisco, it's money that can be used for different things. and the fact that the mta board of directors chooses to use this increase the accessibility of public transportation for low income youth does not mean that the mta cannot, at the same time, turn around and use some of the money for maintenance. that somehow the lack of reliability of the system of an agency that has anpvpx& $800 min budget rests solely on the fact that it's going to make public transit more accessible to low income kids, it's simply not reflective of the reality that has been true of muni for the last few years. muni, to the extent that their issues about maintenance, the reason for that is not because of the funding of these types,%f programs. to the extent thatmine is failing or hasjpn,1 to address those issues, it is not because of somehowqpihb making public transportation more accessible to poor kids in this city. i think it's simply unfair to place that responsibility on that group. we all have ajr:ñ responsibilito make sure that we have a reliable sy

at this discussion in the feature. it might be worthy more at land use or something. however until that longer discussion occurs i propose we should keep the legislation as is, reporting actual numbers. so that kind of sums up some of the amendments that were added tÎÑ÷ this. >> president chiu: supervisor olague has made the possession to amend as described. is there a second? seconded by supervisor kim. any discussion? supervisor kim. >> supervisor kim: not on the motion to amend. >> president chiu: on the motion to amend, supervisor wiener. >> supervisor wiener: i just i -- everything supervisor olague just said. us? >> supervisor olague: yes, with the exception of just a few words. >> supervisor wiener: so then is that on line 6 and line 17 of page 5, the addition of, and other available data? >> supervisor olague: yeah, we wanted1!jpéuz discuss that with- >> supervisor wiener: so it will say based on sponsor's market rate housing proposal and other available data in both locations. >> supervisor olague: yeah. >> supervisor wiener: i appreciate that. >> supervisor olague: it was the upp
's district as well. i think many of us came into the work of public service to fulfill the government's mission in areas like this, to ensure that we are really protecting, defending our most vulnerable residents, and helping property owners to follow the law. and so this particular case of september 12 of this year, all the violations have been corrected and the building has been restored to a livable state for 48 families that reside on this property. so i want to take this time and acknowledge the members of our city family that actually make this happen. we can legislate law. we can talk about building code. but there are people that actually go out there and make that law reality for the residents here in san francisco. so i want to thank rosemary, james, james, david, and allen davidson. we want to recognize you today for your outstanding work protecting the basic living conditions of 48 san francisco families living at 245 leavenworth over the last three years. thank you for your leadership in abating 423 housing code+nc'p violations and restoring the building to a livable sta
here has a monopoly on caring for the maintenance and the reliability of the system. i think all of us believe that that's a priority, and that's something that we should do. but the reason why the amendments are made, supervisor wiener, simply because there are those of us who believe as a principle, that in reality in fact being for making the system accessible touocu income youth is not exclusive -- mutually exclusive from trying to maintain the system. and that i think goes to the very heart of this point that to the extent that you have issues with what muni is doing or not doing with some things, that predicating the resolution of those issues solely or primarily on whether or not to put this that's the right way to frame this. the last thing that i would say is, as you correctly noted, the board of supervisors has acted before on this. i don't know that there has been any new information or evidence that's been presented here about the pros and cons of this system. the fact is that the folks who have raised concerns about the free muni for youth for low income youth pilot have c
us to go everywhere wearing clothes he should have made it that we were born with clothes on. and i think that nudity should be legal all around the world. and if it's a hot day, it should be okay to take off your clothes >> before the next speaker if i could ask everyone to go by the rules. we don't applaud or cheers and i would appreciate that. >> yes i'm a san francisco resident and voter. i am george davis. let me tell you a little story from the pages of history. we all know the story when the nazis came to power and made homo sexuals and others put pink triangles on their clothes and in germany 4 million out of 85 million germans were members of nudist organizations and clubs. in 1933 after the nazis seized was a decree issued ordering all gas stopo forces to destroy the nude culture and they did. in san francisco we have a nudist movement. at best you could say we are regular people promoting body acceptance and we are a harmless group of eccentrics. a small mawpive group is controlling supervisor wiener. mr. wiener has made this bargain. if there has to be a nudity
began his work on the boycott in 1975. of course those of us who know a little bit about harvey milk know a little bit about his involvement in that boycott. as howard explains it, they came to harvey milk and howard and asked for their support for this strike and boycott and both harvey and howard endorsed it, which was really key to making the boycott successful because howard, working with harvey milk, used their influence with bartenders and bar owners in the make the boycott successful and it was really the first time where you had that very powerful pairing of the labor movement with the lgbt community, and that has become very powerful. howard was on the staff of seiu local 50, and as an organizer and community representative wa one of the first in the country to unite lgbt and labor struggles and educate both movements about the other. he retired in 2001 but he remained active until the very end of his life. and one of howard's greatest achievements was actually the formation[jdf of an organizatn that united both lgbt and labor movements he founded gay and lesbian labor al

up that i was saving for before, for chris daly when he used the f word in the board chambers but i think this is more appropriate. catch-22. and think it expresses some of the absurdity of this that we have in the backdrop of world war ii where people are killing each other, the inconsequential nudity that is before the general is sh something that is quite meaningless over all. >> why aren't you wearing clothes, captain? >> don't wanna. >> what do you mean you don't want to. why don't you want to? >> i don't know. i just don't wanna. >> why isn't he wearing clothes? >> he's talking to you. >> why isn't he wearing clothes, major? why isn't he wearing clothes, sergeant. >> the man was killed in his plane and bled all over him. his closes haven't come back from the -- where is his underwear. >> in the laundry, sir. >> that sounds like a lot of crap to me. >> it is a lot of crap, sir. >> sir, you have my word for it this man will be punished severely. >> what the hell do i care. if he wants to receive a medal without any clothes on, what the hell business is it of yours. >> my sentime
is the issue kind of forced itself again on us as i think it did to you supervisor wiener and the board fully supports this legislation and i think it came down to the abuse of a small group of people imposing their nakedness essentially on the neighborhood without any kind of responsibility about what their actions were going to incur, and i think again it happened once and a while, at a straight fair and nobody had a. >> >> street fair and nobody had a problem with it and against it forced itself into the conversation of the neighborhood and as a neighborhood organization we fully support the legislation, so i will try not to be too hiker bollic but equate this with nazi germany and scott wiener is a little bit over board. thank you. >> next speaker. >> good morning. good morning ladies and gentlemen. my name is mitch hightower and live in the community and i am -- part of the naked nude and two words that make everyone's ears perk up even here in san francisco. the supervisor has seriously exaggerated the nudity in jane warner plaza and now a city wide problem and involving every electe
